    I have the phone since they started selling it and so far everything worked well. Yesterday charging has become very slow. I left my cell phone charged during the night and is loaded only by 40%, and the phone still continues to recharge slowly. I cleaned the USB connection, I tried to restart, I got out and put the battery, and still it continues. Why is this happening and what to do? Thanks.

    The phone has been charging for about 20 hours and is recharged only from 5% to 80%

    In my experience it may be a bad charger. The same thing was happening to my sister's iPhone 4s. Turns out the usb charger became faultuy. Got a new one and the phone charged normally again.

    Also don't use the computer to charge it as it's slower. Samsungs are slow at charging usually about 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. iPhone is 1.5 hours. I love how if I forget to charge the iPhone I can plug it in and get at least 25 percent while I shower and get ready.

    I bought the "capdase ultimate charging kit" which includes a charger that only takes about an hour and a half to charge to full :)

    Edit: "an hour and a half" is grossly underestimated, it's actually about 3 - 3.5 hours :p

    Apparently the problem is really the charger itself. I tried another charger and now the charging fine. I'll check again tomorrow.

    this is a total let down, I have the Galaxy S2 and it only takes just a over 2 hours to charge from full from completely dead.

    I may have to skip the G3 if this 3-5 hours is the charging time, the short charging time on the S2 is one of the reasons I love it so much.

    Previously i have been charged the phone from dead battery to full in only 2 hours. It did not take me three or four hours.
